Every Open Eye

With the weather finally warming up over the past couple of weeks, Cherry Blossom has finally broken out here in Paisley. To celebrate the longer, warmer days ahead (or, alternatively to will them on) and to put the last rather autumnal post behind us, this post is all spring-tastic. Avenues, All Lined With Trees… :Continue reading “Every Open Eye”

The Financial District

Thought i’d put up 2 pics today showing the 2 sides of the west of the City Centre area that has been recently been dubbed ‘The Financial District’. The first image shows housing still in place here in Blythswood Court, the second is a much more familiar image. Both were taken last year. Brutalism Today:Continue reading “The Financial District”

Another Mural and A Statue About A Snail

Couple of weeks ago I took shots of the side of the Japanese Street Food restaurant and the nearby mural in Gauze Street. Last Friday, i took a pic of a new Mural on Lady Lane (next to a food bank as it happens) and also the statue of May Donoghue. Childhood in Poverty: LadyContinue reading “Another Mural and A Statue About A Snail”

In The Gothic Gloom

Lockdown blues had got to me before. Late last summer, I was becoming a little bored of streetscapes and cityscapes and wanted to do something more interesting. Before the woodlands and the countryside’s came a trip one Saturday afternoon to Woodside Crematorium in Paisley to capture the atmosphere here… It was a trip partly inspiredContinue reading “In The Gothic Gloom”

Some Murals…

Long weekend last weekend, i had some things to pick up and also some things to look at… Things needing a camera.

Look West

Additional post this week. Accompanying the post about Coats Memorial Baptist Church, here’s a pic that shows how much it dominates the Paisley skyline. I do hope you like it as I nearly slid and fell into the Barshaw Park mud heading accross to the top of the hill (not something you see a lotContinue reading “Look West”

The Jewel In The Crown

As i intimated a couple of weeks ago, Paisley Abbey is not my favourite building in Paisley. It is a beautiful building that is difficult to take a bad picture of, but it is edged out, in my mind, by the Coats Memorial Church. Catch The Sun: 7 June 2008, F/3, 1/11s, ISO 100 AllContinue reading “The Jewel In The Crown”

I Go Out Walking

Will be doing a post next week about my favourite building in Paisley (as i hinted at in my Paisley Abbey post). Till then, 2 long exposure shots from a couple of weeks ago. Rush Hour: Junction 27, M8 at Arkleston, Paisley, 26 February 2021, F/18.0, 13s, ISO 100, 49.0mm To The Centre Of TheContinue reading “I Go Out Walking”
